Balloons and song of the day

You thought I was going to post 99 Luftballoons, ja?

Nein. Here is Cyndi Lauper rocking some yellow shoes and a balloon-festooned porch. Now, why are her condiments on the floor? That's a recipe for a messy floor.

Here's some Goonies 'R' Good Enough for our girl Tanya. It's the evil creditors version.

Friday font fun

Fukkin' Mixxtape

So, it's my birthday soon. Dave, I still owe you your birthday presents. One of which is a FUKKIN' MIXXTAPE! - songs with the word "Fark" in them.

Seeing as a) I won't see you for a while and b) we could both use a teensy ray of fun to alleviate work and study stress, here goes the first of several in a countdown of FUKKIN great songs. The list is almost complete in my mind goo... f*cking excellent...

Australia Day

Aussie song, Aussie guy.

I found it with German dubbing too. Hilarious.

❥Mixtape Love

As you are

Sit back, you don't have to work so hard
It makes me tired to watch you try
Relax, you already played your cards
And I know which ones are a lie

It makes me really sad to see
The things you think you have to be
Just to be enough for me
When you already are

Why can't you just look at you
In the same way that I do?
Through all that's false and all that's true
I like you, as you are

I know that you can get sad sometimes
I see it mostly when you smile
Let go of all of your supposed crimes
Just be with me for a while

I know this may be hard to hear
But all your tricks are really clear
I see right through your slick veneer
To the secret life you hide

Why can't you just look at you
In the same way that I do?
Through all that's false and all that's true
I like you as you are

Take me in
Believe me when I say
You're more than just okay
You're perfect as you are

Thanks Jen for introducing me to Garfunkel and Oates (track 15, 2009 Christmas mixtape).

This song makes me feel loved, even though it makes me cry more whilst my broken heart heals. If Pathology has taught us nothing more, it's that healing hurts. Damn bradykinin...

I love this project by Petar Pavlov. With my naturally large head, I must be pretty hostile.

We heart hearts

Unfortunately, we don't love study.

If they were trying to redeem themselves from the Snuggie episode, they failed

My mother bought me weezer's latest album, Raditude, for Christmas. I was listening to the third track, "Can't Stop Partying", as I drove home and trying to decide whether the lyrics or the melody were more disappointing. All of a sudden it cut to a rap interlude and I almost became part of the Christmas road toll. I really hoped they were taking the piss. Anyway, researching the internets has led to the knowledge that the rapper was Lil Wayne. Apparently his nickname is Weezy.  One reviewer writes that the song was "written on the foundation of Weezer fans' tears."

I need to soothe my anger with some Muppets.

Balloons of the day

P.S. did you hear that there's a global helium shortage? This article quotes the President of the International Balloon Association.
